Clash For The Cup 7th Grade Top Performers: Part 2

Terrence Trice Jr. (Riverside Hawks)  

The 7th Grade Division had some other players that made huge impacts over the weekend. Here’s another look at some of the top performers from this past weekend. 

Clash For The Cup 7th Grade Top Performers Part 2 

TJ Trice Guard (Riverside Hawks)- The Hawks needed some ammo coming into the season and Trice seems to have added the missing piece. He lit up Team Final for 25 points in their first win and finished the tournament averaging close to 20 points an outing.
Myles Dread Forward (Metro Sixers)- Dread didn’t disappoint in his second Spotlight tournament. He averaged 15 points a game and made a living at the free through line. His aggressive style forces the defense to react. He doesn’t mind sacrificing his body for the success of the unit.
Devandre Edmonds Forward (Mass Shooting Stars)- Edmonds returned to form during their game against Team Final. He was a menace on the glass and finished with 16 markers. When he plays with this type of aggression his squad is usually successful. 

Dallas Watson Guard (Milbank)- “The Bank” made a surprised run to the final four and Watson was the lead catalyst. The point guard has a lot of bounce to his game and used a mean ratchet to hurt the defense. In their quarterfinal game versus Riverside Watson lit up the Hawks for 24 points including 5 treys. This kid definitely brought his a game this weekend.
Paul Durkee Forward (Mass Shooting Stars)- Durkee also had a huge game against Team Final. He’s a mid range killer that’s goes harder when his confidence is flowing. I like his upside especially since I see how tall his father is. 

Justin Moore Guard (Metro Sixers)- Moore is one of the best guards on this grade level. He was a beast versus New Heights with 22 points and dropped another 23 against ECE. If you need a smooth and confident guard to run your team, Moore is the kid to hire. 
Cameron Reddish Guard (Team Final)- I’m usually good at spotting talent and I think this kid is one to watch. He has a great feel for the game and has a lot of growing to do in terms of size. He led the team in scoring once again and I can’t wait to see this finished product years from now. 

Jaquan Hooks Guard (6th Man Warriors)- The punishing guard maneuvered his way into the lane at will. He did everything including hitting a halftime buzzer beater in their two point loss to eventual champion CIA Bounce. 

Devonte Hill Guard (6th Man Warriors)- Hill also hit the scoring column hard for 6th Man especially from the free throw line. He connected on 11 foul shots during their classic battle with the Canadian squad.
